From the California Dept. of Insurance:
Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones, together with the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) and Consumer Reports, [recently] announced today the launch of California Healthcare Compare, a web-based tool that offers quality and price information in a consumer-focused, easy-to-use website.
California Healthcare Compare allows consumers to compare hospital and medical group quality in the areas of maternity care, hip and knee replacement, back pain, colon cancer screening, and diabetes to help consumers make informed decisions about where to seek care. The site also reveals estimated regional costs for more than 100 different medical procedures or conditions ranging from appendicitis to prostate cancer, illustrating dramatic price differences depending on where you seek care. To enhance consumers’ knowledge of the healthcare system, Consumer Reports provides expert tips and advice on how to navigate the healthcare system.
